at the end of 2014 was prefaced on the idea that the surge would have created some better environment from which it would make sense we could leave because things would be better. if that promise is wrong and things after the surge are worse than before the surge, if things are not going to get better by the time we are set to leave, then why are we sticking with that as still being the time to leave? when the pentagon announced the end of the surge last week, when they announced the surge was over, they talked less about blunting taliban momentum and more about how the surge helped us train lots of afghan security forces. in theory, lots of trained afghan security forces is a way afghanistan could get more safe. but right now it's also a way americans get killed. by the afghans we are training and arming. afghan troops are turning around and killing american troops they're supposed to be working with at such a rate now that the training and joint operations between the two forces were halted this month. and have only now started to scale back up. that's the circumstances in which 68,000 a
's global environment so the export-led investment heavy model is not working. they did not make the change to consumption five years ago when they could have started it now they can't do it because the economy is in such distress. >>neil: are you saying desperate times call for this behavior? >>guest: they are trying to distract chinese people from what going open. the first two weeks this month, the next leaders of china is missing from public and the state media is quiet but at the same time the state media ramps up the propaganda against japan regarding the islands to deflect the attention of the chinese people. this is the political organization that's primary basis of legitimacy is the continuing delivery of prosperity. when it cannot do that it falls on nationalism which brings it in conflict with countries in the region and the united states. many of those countries are our allies or friends. >>neil: if the emperor has no clothes he is desperate? >>guest: yes, we have seen this in other countries and china. there are a lot of things going in the wrong direction and we are not really
the debate, a national poll coming out, but you see the environment. one other interesting note on polling, if you average the nine states together in the various leads, almost looks identical to the national polls. five and a half point lead for the president, 49, 44 with rounding, which of course is where all the national polls sit around five points for the president. romney starts his morning in a state that hasn't been able to put into play, pennsylvania. he will speak to veterans at valley forge military academy in a philadelphia suburb. only public event of the day. he will be fund-raising in philadelphia, probably the motivation why he is in philly. slew of national polls show how damaging romney's remark on the 47% has been to his campaign. the most recent national polls trails the president by 5 to 8 points. instead of punching a national message, romney seems to be making the parochial argument. yesterday in virginia, warned an american legion audience that devastating job losses were coming if congress and the president go through with the defense cuts called sequestration. >>
in half by 2020. it's good for the environment. it's good for the economy. it's good for our national security. that's what i mean when i say we need to go forward. todo.s what we're going to ne we need to give every american the chance to compete by making sure we've got the best education system in the world. that's the reason i'm standing here today. that's the gateway od the gatew th middle class. and because of the work we've already done, millions of young people are better able to afford college already. and now we've got to do mor by hiring 100,000 new math and science teachers. by making sure that we're providing millions of new slots for folks to retrain at community colleges for the jobs that exist right now. continue to lower tuition costs for students so they're not loaded up with debt once they graduate. my opponent thinks that it makes sense for us to gut our investment in education in order to give a tax break to the wealthy. i disagree. i think what the united states of america means is that no child should be deprived of a good education. it means that no family shou

south and east, that we could have created an environment where we could leave and have them capable of carrying out their continued counterinsurgency missions. the fact is, al qaeda is on the rise throughout the middle east. the fact is that they believe that we are weak. they believe we are withdrawing. i talk to these leaders all over the middle east. and this is part of that scenario. look at what's happened in iraq. over 4,000 young americans, and we now have al qaeda on the comeback. anyway, go ahead, willie. >> history is what it is, senator. i think a lot of us wish we weren't in afghanistan anymore, that we hadn't lost 2,000 lives. >> but there was a way out. it's not as if it was an impossible situation. almost all of us agree there was a way that we could have succ d succeeded. >> fair enough, but we are where we are. so what would you do today? why would another year, five years, ten years change afghanistan? >> i would make a decision as to whether we had a significant number of troops listening to my military leadership to remain there to carry out an environment where
in a political environment. the fact is, it is indisputable this was clear evidence, long before susan rice was on the talk shows and before jake carney denied this was terrorism and said this was about the film. there are a lot of questions that must be answered. americans ought to demand we know why didn't you tell us the truth? i have been pretty blunt about this from day one. our government lied to us. i don't know who is responsible. i do know we have been lied to. there has been a coverup. that is unquestionable at this stage. >>dave: you compared it to watergate saying it was, perhaps, worse. this statement from the director of national intelligence. in the immediate aftermath there was information that led to us assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they become available. through our investigation we emphasized that information gathered was preliminar
this in a controlled environment, like a studio. not the chaotic shots you see here. and experts and u.s. officials say normally when you see the syrian rebels they look very worn and dishevelled. reflects the hardships of fighting hard over zeseveral months. the militants in this video look clean, too clean some would say. bottom line, u.s. officials still believe austin tykes is being held by the syrian government. that begs the obvious question of why. why would bashar al assad's regime f it did, make this video like this? and one expert on syria says it goes back to the very beginning when the assad regime tried to paint the opposition as control by jihadists and foreign-backed terrorists. >> the u.s. to date has been reluctant to buy into this narrative. and they have been very afraid of painting the entire opposition as an al qaeda-inspired revolt against the assad regime. however, this type of video would give credence and a grain of truth to assad's claims that there are very important extremists and jihadist elements operating within the opposition which would make any further action on behalf
